Q :       I own a pair of barber scissors my father used to cut my hair when I was a boy back in the 1930s. Stamped on them is, “Vogel Bros., Chicago, Ill., E-Z Edge.” How old are they and what are they worth?

A:         The Vogel family, founders of Vogel Bros., say that the company has been making cutlery for 300 years. Within the past couple of years, Vogel’s assets were sold, but family members are involved in the two companies that took over Vogel’s assets: Anvil Corp. and Wolfe Industries. Your scissors probably date from the 1920s or ’30s. E-Z Edge scissors sell online for $20 to $30.



#10 Grand Rapids Chair Co Dining table and sideboardBobf1969 2016-12-19 20:30
I own an oak dining table, chairs & matching sideboard that I am trying to identify their origin & value. We bought them in 1982, & think they were built the 1st quarter of the 20th century.The sideboard has 4 large door cabinets and 3 drawers that open with a skeleton key. On the back panel of the sideboard is a tag that says "Grand Rapids Chair Co., Manufacturers of Furniture, Grand Rapids, Michigan". Octagon shaped table has 3 inserts to increase the length to 7.5 ft. A metal/wood mechanism under the table increase/decrea se the length, with a metal handle to hold the table together.The mechanism is stamped "Watertown Table-Slide Co. Watertown Wisconsin". It has 6 chairs w/ captains chair having arm rails, & upholstered seats. I believe the style is quarter-sawn oak. I am trying to find out if there are photos/data indicating the types of units built by the Grand Rapids Co as I have not come across anything resembling my units on the internet. Any info you can offer is appreciated.

#8 Navajo original paintingD912 2016-09-21 20:34
I have an original signed painting by Navajo artist Charles Keetsie Shirley. The most info I could find on him is an article "Keetsie" in the June 1939 edition of The Desert. I also found he is listed in the National Register of Historic Buildings papers as the artist submitting the draft paintings in 1939 for the Tribal Council Chamber painted wall murals at Window Rock, AZ. I believe he was born ~1909 in Chinle, AZ.
He had two sons, who I believe are both deceased. Any other paintings, info available, or valuation?

I have a fluted 10" tall, pale green ewer with a Camark label still on bottom of vase, stamped 513, in excellent condition. How can I find the value of this? It belonged to my grandmother, and I remember seeing it in her home in the 1960's.

I have 5 Steins that would have to be at least 60 years old. They have a festive scene on them featuring cherubs, wine barrels, men playing musical instruments and women dancing. The handles are the shape of a lion but they dont have lids. Can you tell me anything about them

Hello, This poster belonged to my husbands grandparents who lived in Buffalo, NY. The framed print measures approximately 26"w x 18"h and is under glass.

Is there any value to this print that would warrant paying to have it repaired?

We appreciate any information you can provide as we cannot find anything remotely close to this print on line.

I have a vase nearly identical to one that you have on your site: North Dakota School Of Mines Description Coyotes, Carved, Julia Mattson, Indigo Stamp, c.1935, 3 1/2 x 3 3/4 In. illustrated

It is in excellent condition, looks to be the same size, color and motif. Is mine possibly worth the same as the vase that is listed on your site? I am not sure how to go about getting it appraised and selling it.
